State Representative District 11 race overview

AUSTIN, TX (KTRE) – Incumbent State Representative for District 11 Chuck Hopson is hoping his track record and plans for the future are enough reasons for voters to send him back to Austin.

Hopson describes himself as an East Texan whose family roots run deep.  He says he is a protector of conservative values and names "our children, our community and our conservative values" as his top three priorities.

Newly drawn District 11 encompasses Cherokee, Angelina and Rusk counties.

Hopson faces Republicans Tony Sevilla and Travis Clardy in the Primary. 

Sevilla lists Alto as his hometown.  He is running on the platform of fiscal responsibility and a return to the Biblical principles upon which the state and country were founded.  Sevilla interned for three legislative sessions while pursuing a political science degree at Texas State in San Marcos. 

Clardy describes himself as a small business owner and attorney who will get results for our community.  He says as a conservative Republican he will "work to create a pro-growth environment so local small businesses can create more jobs, hold the line against higher taxes, work to find Texas' solution to illegal immigration, limit the size of government and end unneeded regulations, fight for our water rights."  He believes he can be the voice of change for East Texas. 

Early voting in the May 29 Primary runs through May 25.  The Primary Election is May 29.  There is no Democratic nominee.
